Teachers who choose not to pursue administrative roles do not always have a clear path for growth. When teachers reach the effective, then accomplished, and finally inspired stages of their development, they are often faced with the decision to change paths to continue growing.
Virginia teacher John Holland’s own path has been a switch from early childhood to art after deciding to become and administrator and then return to the classroom. Other teachers who have reached this crossroads — such as Jessica Keigan, Jessica Cuthbertson, Megan Allen, Lori Nazareno, Tonishia Short, and Ariel Sacks — have all made this decision.
John explores the decision to leap into the unknown and face fear, hope, self knowledge and ultimately commitment to the profession these teachers make at a crucial time in their career.
